Narrowly escaped the new restrictions imposed on parts of the NW last night :sweat:
If you drew a semi circle with a 15 mile radius from me North to South then that's how close it was. Even closer for my Mum who's 5 miles nearer to Darwen than I am. She's so looking forward to getting out of her prison bungalow tomorrow even if it's just for a drive round (I've told her to use back roads until she's got used to it as she's not driven the car for some 5 months)

If you go the same way as Australia, the whole place will be shut down again.

Nothing like a bit of model making and, in this case, model completion to lift the spirits.

I declare my rake of JTAs / JUAs complete.

I obtained this rake of TPM (now NGS) kits part built years ago. Lockdown has seen me decal them and complete what is by far my biggest N gauge kit build to date.

Loved every minute of the build and livery research for these. One day will double the rake but that’s for the future.

I am planning on making my own and using a magnet to make the loads easily removable.

Got plenty of material available so it should be another cheap project for me.
